I love this next wedding for so many reasons. I love that Liz and Emily chose a spot as personal as Duxbury Beach. The home where Liz spent every summer growing up, eventually bringing her new love to spend a few months together along the same beautiful shores. I love that Liz and Emily were barefoot on the beach as their good friend Peter began the ceremony by reciting the Supreme Court ruling which finally recognized same-sex marriages as law, underscoring that all love is equal. I love that Liz and Emily’s parents wrote meaningful words about their daughters, which were read aloud and resulted in lots of happy tears. I love that this powerful yet intimate ceremony was followed by a champagne toast, an amazing brunch, and a beach day for each guest. I love that dinner was served just as the sun set in the backyard, slowly creeping below the marsh as everyone gathered to talk about an unforgettable day. I love that I have known Liz for over twenty years. Our first meeting was in Middle School when Liz’s family moved in to the house next door down in Duxbury. Our families have been intertwined ever since, through each phase that life has to offer. I love that when Liz brought Emily home for the first time…I knew. I knew a future together was in the works from the very first interaction. When Liz and Emily are in the same place, there is palpable joy. More than anything…I love knowing deep down, with no hesitation, that two people are going to be together forever. Liz and Emily….thank you for allowing me to witness not just your wedding day, but the whole story that is your love for one another. You are both beautiful women from the inside out, and have that one of a kind relationship that will continue to catch fire as the years go by. From the looks of it, you are just getting started and I can’t wait to see what your life together will bring. Cheers to you both and see you down the beach!!
